NGP VAN Reaches Out To The LGBTQ Community

NGP VAN has always been at the forefront of progressive campaigns. NGP VAN understands the importance of the LGBTQ community. NGP VAN has begun to integrate inclusive properties into their software to help it become more appealing to the LGBTQ community. NGP VAN has begun implementing the use of non-binary gender pronouns in voters’ contact records. Thanks to the new software, NGP VAN donors and volunteers are more accurately represented.

The LGBTQ community is a point of emphasis for Democrats because there are millions of LGBTQ voters who vote for Democrats across the United States. The majority of voters reside in urban areas. Those voters make up an important demographic for the Democrats. The change in software by NGP VAN is a sign that the company wants to showcase a more inclusive view of gender.
